National Hockey League rumors: Could the Predators actually bench Pekka Rinne?

Pittsburgh Penguins’ Matt Murray left Jake Guentzel center and Brian Dumoulin celebrate after the Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators 4-1 in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday in Pittsburgh National Hockey League rumors: Could the Predators actually bench Pekka Rinne?

P.K. Subban has not been shy about his confidence in the Nashville Predators and their ability to bounce back.

It stayed 4-1 after Pittsburgh's Matt Cullen was ruled offside following a coach's challenge of a goal by Patric Hornqvist. "You just have to bury these two games and find a way to have some success". Ali's strategy, one still discussed today with a kind of head-shaking, slack-jawed reverence, was to let Foreman, one of the fiercest punchers in history, throw everything he had, in the hopes that he would eventually tire and be easy prey. That, above everything, they have.

Prior to Game 2, Rinne had allowed just one goal in each of the four games following a loss in these playoffs. They were also decimated by a flu bug that had players throwing up all over the place due to a pregame meal the night before in Detroit where the team was given "tainted chicken soup". Predators trail the Penguins 1-0 in the series. "So we're going back home, we're going to win the next game, and then we'll see what happens from there". That has not come to fruition through two games, but unless an injury forces the move, benching Rinne is not the answer for the Predators. At the 16:36 mark of the first period, Guentzel tied the game. The Predators controlled the pace and the puck, just not the scoreboard.

And then Crosby won the opening faceoff in the third, and Rinne sent a rebound of a Bryan Rust shot out like a pinball flipper and Guentzel buried it. Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin scored 15 seconds apart in the third period at PPG Paints Arena, as Pittsburgh again struggled for long stretches before finding a way to win.

Rinne is now winless in five career starts at Pittsburgh and looking to change his luck in Nashville where the Predators are 7-1 in the playoffs. The Predators had 38 shots to the Penguins' 27, but Rinne allowed four goals on 25 shots and got the hook in favor of backup Juuse Saros in the third period. Crossing the blue line, Aberg went outside and beat Olli Maatta down the wing before out-waiting a sprawling Murray to give the Predators their first lead of the series. The Predators are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 18.9 percent of their power play opportunities. They don't win games with 12 shots and going 37 minutes without one period.

What doesn't is that Rinne is the weak spot, and this is how Pittsburgh wins.

"When we score one, we don't stop", Malkin said.

The decision gave the Penguins all the wiggle room they needed to take charge. "Like I said, I think there's things we can do better".

I'm not saying Subban was intimate with Crosby, but I bet he could tell you what Crosby had for the pregame meal.

"It's not the situation we wanted coming here", said Rinne. The guy I was with was drinking a beer, so I took the tab off his beer and went to the bathroom.

In this case, you can see why. But they finished the season strong, and continued that play into the playoffs. His two goals, the Penguins early equalizer and eventual game victor, now have him sitting at 19 points this postseason, the most by any American rookie player in the playoffs. "We had a good first, we had a awful second and we were bad in the third".

"Everything was there that we liked but the result", Ellis said. At the very least, he needs to go to a place where Jake Guentzel, who scored twice, doesn't exist.

Ottawa learned this is game 5 when they were blown out of the building.but they also learned that with a new game comes a new chance to keep the Penguins from countering by playing more controlled.
